[Verse 1] If you love and you would know whether she loves you / There’s a simple method to follow quite easy too / You must choose the time and place ev’ry chance you must embrace, / If you’d certain be / Try it and you will see. [Chorus] Choose a starry night in June / Tell her while you’re dancing / Choose a tender haunting tune / Dreamy waltz, entrancing / Tell her softly, whisper low / Tell her that you love her / She will never answer “no” / Tell her while you waltz.
